My Children


When kai was born
I knew him
He was mine
I was his
It had always been that way
For what reason
I still dont know

I was terrified
When raven was born
Because i didnt recognise her
This fat rolly bubba
Who was she?
Why was she here?
Why me?

Sounds awful

But my soul didnt recognise her
It still doesnt

So i came to the conclusion

She must be new

Everything is amazing
And she wants to try everything
Right now
She is ready to take on the world
No fear
No past regrets
No memories
Not tainted or haunted by her past

Kai arrived like
Uh huh
Here we go again
Some things he says
Like he knows
He just knows
And he is bored
Like come on now
What else is new?

Two completely different children
Who love each other more than anyone else in the world
At one year old
Raven knows who she loves the most

When i get upset with her
She runs to her brother

Bless their mismatching cotton/nylon socks
Bless my children
Whoever they were
This time
They are mine
And i cant wait to see what the future holds
